    Internet Governance Project writes to announce the launch of its eponymous project.

    "We are pleased to announce the launch of the Internet Governance Project(IGP), a multi-university partnership to analyze global Internet policy issues. IGP's research agenda is closely related to the on-going United Nations' review of Internet Governance.

    IGP's member institutions include two research centers at Syracuse University:
          - The Convergence Center at the School of Information Studies
          - The Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at the Maxwell School
    and one research center at the Georgia Institute of Technology:
          - The Internet and Public Policy Project (IP3) at the School of Public Policy

    As its first project IGP is providing the United Nations' Information and Communication Technologies Task Force (UN ICT TF) a detailed analysis of global policy regimes. The resulting study will provide a fact-based "map" of existing global rules for the Internet and the institutions that make those rules.

    IGP's research team includes:
    - MILTON MUELLER, Professor, Syracuse University School of Information Studies
    - JOHN R. MATHIASON, Adjunct Professor, Syracuse University Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs
    - HANS KLEIN, Assoc. Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Public Policy
    - LEE MCKNIGHT, Assoc. Professor, Syracuse University School of Information Studies
    - MARC HOLITSCHER, Lecturer, Institut für Politikwissenschaft der Universität Zürich

    Paul Vixie Realizes He Is Being Slam Dunked ?

    > ... Why doesn't this group join hand to insure full exploitation of IPv6?

    based on http://www.chinatechnews.com/index.php?action=show &type=news&id=1405,
    i'd say that the answer to that question is implied by the following quote:

                    China and the United States are currently the only two countries
                    that possess root domain name analysis servers, IP address servers,
                    independent domain names, IP addresses and MAC address sources.

    IPv6 is apparently being seen as just one more way in which the United States
    is trying to dominate the world's commerce and communications systems. The
    IPv9 team in China is able to justify continued government funding simply by
    saying that "this will make China a peer of the United States".

    One way of reading these tea leaves is to say that ICANN hasn't been seen as
    truly open, truly inclusive, or truly independent. "Lapdog of the US-DoC"
    was one critic's description. Speaking as an early adopter of Vint's and
    Jon's philosophy of openness/inclusiveness/interoperability, it's really
    painful to see balkanization and to consider it inevitable.
